More than 30 years ago, the Amazon Center for Environmental Education and Research (ACEER) was founded with a vision to collaborate with universities, schools, business conservation organizations, and families in the United States and Peru.
Today, we are proud to operate as a global leader in experiential education focused on environmental issues and indigenous cultures in the Amazon basin and around the world.
Our roots will always be in the Amazon, but the lessons we’ve learned over three decades in the Peruvian Amazon are valuable to everyone…
….everywhere, all over the world.
The ACEER Foundation is the go-to experiential learning organization in southeastern Peru that delivers education programs to help develop the next generation of cross-disciplinary conservation leaders
The ACEER Conservation Learning Web is a bold educational initiative that integrates environmental education in the classroom with out-of-school learning experiences and community programs
